First Lady Melania Trump sent care packages that include blankets, caps, and other gifts to hospital medical staff and children patients in 10 states, including a hospital that were the hardest hit by the coronavirus.
Hospitals in New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Florida, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Delaware, Nevada, and the District of Columbia were sent the care packages that were shipped on Thursday.
“The medical community has gone above and beyond to protect the health of the American people,” the First Lady said in a statement. “The packages are just a small token of my appreciation for their courage and leadership in this time of need.”

Earlier, Melania tweeted an uplifting message of her “thoughts and prayers” to those fighting this “terrible virus,” as well as “families who have lost loved ones” to millions of Americans.
Our thoughts & prayers continue to be w/ each person suffering & fighting to recover from this terrible virus, & with all of the families who have lost loved ones. Even though we are physically apart, we are all in this fight together.
